No other school district in the state can boast Huntington’s group of parent photographers.

Darin Reed, Mike Connell and Lorraine Moya give Huntington an unmatched set of professionals who annually snap tens of thousands of photos and share them with the community via the district’s website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.

The three volunteers were out in full force on Huntington’s Homecoming Day. By coincidence, members of the group were in close proximity to each other at one point, so Director of Athletics Georgia Deren McCarthy was able to quickly snap a photo of her own to capture the three parents at work with their cameras.
